Come and play badminton at King Harold Sports Centre!
Every Tuesday and Thursday 7pm – 10pm in our large Sports Hall.
We welcome players of all levels and abilities. All you need to do is find an opponent or get a group of four people and bring your badminton racquets and shuttlecocks along. We have five courts in total and already have many regular groups enjoying badminton games every week.
Did you know that badminton is the fastest Racket Sport with shuttle clocking speed in excess of 200 mph? Badminton is also the second most popular sport in the world, after football? So, get involved! Come and have some fun!
Badminton is also great for your health! Here are just five of the many health benefits of badminton from www.healthfitnessrevolution.com
1. Physical fitness: Between the running, lunging, diving and ball hitting, playing badminton burns fat at approximately 450 calories per hour. This kind of cardiovascular workout can help keep you in tip top shape, especially if you’re looking for a good alternative cross-training exercise.
2. Psychological benefits: Because badminton promotes physical fitness, it helps to reduce stress and anxiety. Exercise increases endorphins, which are the brain’s feel-good neurotransmitters, and has also been found to improve mood and sleep.
3. Good for overall health: As with all forms of physical exercise, badminton can reduce or eliminate your risk for many health problems, such as high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity. It can also reduce your risk for coronary heart disease by reducing your triglyceride levels and increasing your “good” cholesterol.
4. Mobility: As we age, mobility becomes limited, but staying active can help prevent these problems. Keeping mobile lubricates your joints, preventing arthritis and similar conditions from developing.
5. Weight loss: Badminton can also help with weight control because of its fat-burning and metabolism boosting qualities. Combined with proper diet, optimal weight loss may be achieved.
